“Excellent location, affordable, clean and a superb breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

We stayed at Kori Bali 1, located down a narrow alley right smack in the center of Ubud. Restaurants, shopping, massages, and the famous monkey Forest Temple are all within easy walking distance from the guesthouse. Our room is spacious, clean, bright (a difficult feature to find in many Bali's budget places), and has two beds. Nyoman who takes care of the property is friendly, very helpful and he takes great pride in keeping the place clean. He told me that he used to work at a 5-star hotel and that is where he learned his housekeeping and customer service skills. Nyoman's breakfast is superb -- a big plate of fresh tropical fruits, toast and eggs of any style. He even does poached eggs well!!! Of course, coffee is included, recently we had guests in next room which came from a hotel next door. they had to move out for 3 days because they wanted to extend their stay in Bali but their room was booked by other guests. But after staying at Kori Bali, they decided to stay on because they said the rooms are cleaner and they loved Nyoman's breakfast. No doubt I will return to Kori Bali if I come back to Bali again some day. And oh, on our last morning Mount Agung was in full view from our veranda. Majestic.

Room Tip: Rooms on second and third floors are brighter but the room on ground floor has a larger veranda spac...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

I stayed Kori Bali Inn 1 for 3 nights,and there is so peaceful and quiet. Though it is located in the Jl.Monkey Forest but actually it is behind the rice filed ,The loudest noise at night must from the frogs and insects in the filed. The view are so amazing especially the sunrise.
Host are very nice and friendly, smiling all the time. I really enjoy during the time i stayed.

Room Tip: Rooms at the second Floor are good view to see mountains and rice filed.

Kori Bali Inn 1 is just off Monkey Forest Road, off Gang Beji. across the road from the soccer field. It's a six-room bed and breakfast, two rooms on each of three levels. Each room has a double and single bamboo bed with bedside table in between and a cupboard, great for two or a small family. There is also a dressing table and basin with a closed-off bathroom with loo and shower over the bath. The water is warm, not hot, so no need to use the cold tap and it's probably more convenient to hand hold the shower rose to stop the water from going onto the floor. The guest house will provide one towel and toilet paper, so you must bring your own soap. The pillows are a little hard for my liking but I got used to it after a couple of nights. There is only a ceiling fan, but I find that perfectly acceptable for Ubud.

The great advantages of this place are the price, the cleanliness and the location. It's Rp.200,000 per room which includes breakfast of fruit and a choice of scrambled egg, poached egg or jaffle. Each morning a thermos of boiling water is put on your balcony table with pots of Bali coffee, tea bags and sugar. Nyoman will take care of you and keeps the place very clean, which is not easy to find in cheap or even middling Balinese accommodation. He does an excellent job and will help out in any way he can.

Location is great, as mentioned. You are right in the middle of restaurants and shops, easy walk to the main road and the Ubud market too.

No wifi but you can pay to use same at the hotel next door, Oka Wati, where you can also pay to use their swimming pool.

I'll definitely stay there on my next visit and may even take my own pillow!
